Congratulations to UCI Professor Alexander Chernyshev, who has been elected a 2017 Fellow of the American Physical Society (APS) for outstanding contributions to his field.
The number of APS Fellows elected each year is limited to no more than one half of one percent of the membership. Dr. Chernyshev is a theoretician, working on the complex materials with potentially highly nontrivial quantum properties. In the last decade, he has focused on the unusual quantum states and quasi-particle excitations of frustrated magnets.
“My first scientific paper was published on January 1, 1993 in one of the leading journals of the American Physical Society. Almost 25 years and 66 publications later, it is a real pleasure to be recognized for my modest impact on the field of theoretical condensed matter physics,” says Dr. Chernyshev.
APS Fellowship is a distinct honor as every Fellow is nominated by his or her peers. Fellows will be presented with certificates during their annual meeting.
